|I was particularly excited when the Braves acquired Derrek Lee for the stretch run last year, and not just because Troy Glaus’s production had collapsed to Scot Thormanian levels. I’ve just always liked him. I liked him as a Fish and loved him as a Cub.
He comes off as one of those quiet, excellent professionals. He reminds me a great deal of the Crime Dog, and interestingly enough, McGriff is #1 on Baseball Reference’s Similar Players through Age 34 list for Lee. I hope he rebounds from his subpar 2010 and has a big year for the Orioles.
Thanks to Colbey for the card! It’s in the Braves binder.
